I guess it is now important that my mother made me eat tofu because according to a study at Georgetown, women who start eating soy as an adult tend to develop treatment resistant breast cancer tumors. But those who eat soy as a child and then through adulthood are more likely to develop tumors which are very sensitive to treatment.
This means I have eaten my lifetime quota of soy and have no reason to eat any more. I dislike tofu with a passion and have a good excuse for never eating it again. I tried soy yogurt once and found it tastes like Elmer's glue (according to my childhood memories) and tried giving it away to my 'healthy' friends who told me they didn't like it either.
Other things I never have to eat again:
- processed food which has soy added to make it healthy - this includes many of the weight loss programs which supplement their foods with soy.
- Tofu (I add this again as a reflection of its 'ick' factor)
And I will never eat tofu again.
